It kind of snuck up on us, but the Marshall County Hoop Fest is this weekend. Future Cat Shai Alexander and his Hamilton Heights Christian Academy team are participating, and on Thursday night at 9 p.m., their game vs. Memphis East will be televised on ESPN2. We don’t know a ton about Alexander yet (he’s averaging 20 points so far this season), so this is a great opportunity to get to know one of our newest signees.
If you’re going to the Hoop Fest, you can also see Alexander play Friday vs. five-star guards Gary Trent Jr. and Paul Scruggs. Alexander’s the only UK signee playing, but the event also includes John Petty, DeAndre Ayton, and Taveion Hollingsworth, the Dunbar star who recently signed with Western Kentucky.
